Amy Carter, chief executive of The Christchurch Foundation, says The Christchurch Foundation will work with Muslim communities to identify how the funds will be distributed and when.

“We are shocked and deeply saddened by what is happened in our city yesterday. Christchurch remains a place where all peace-loving people are welcome and warmly embraced by our community,” says Mrs Carter.
